7. Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 (2023)

Kicking our list of the best gaming Laptops Under 2.5 Lakhs in Nepal is the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 (2023). The Zephyrus Series from Asus is all about the power and performance.

6. Lenovo Legion Slim 7i (2023)

When we think of gaming laptops, we usually think of mean machines with all the power in the world. However, Lenovo has taken a different approach with the new Legion Slim 7i. The company is promoting it as a portable gaming laptop that students and traveling professionals can travel with.

It brings a sharp 3.2K IPS screen with a diagonal length of 16” and a 165Hz refresh rate. The screen boasts 100% DCI-P3 coverage and Dolby Vision certification. Paired with stereo speakers by Harmon, you can use the laptop for multimedia consumption when you are not gaming.

Talking about gaming, like most laptops in this list, you get the Intel Core i7-13700H CPU. This is paired with an RTX 4060 GPU. The thing to note here is that Lenovo has set the internals to run on much lower levels than the actual potential to attain the thin form factor. For instance, the RTX 4060 has a TGP of just 115W. So, while it performs exceptionally well for a laptop of this size, there are bigger laptops that perform better in the same price bracket. That said, the 115W TGP is still better than last year’s model.
